    I wanted to have a discussion about TV and movies sequels and remakes.

    What remakes are good and bad? What do you want to see remade and what should not be touched?

    I’ll post later but just wanted to get the ball rolling.

    I tried watching the remake of MacGyver but lost interest quickly.

    I liked Lethal Weapon but now that they replaced Riggs we stopped recording it. The fella that played his character was the best part of the show.

    I was a Dukes of Hazzard and A-Team guy back in the day but I doubt any remake could compare today. I didn't even like it when Coy and Vance stood in for Bo and Luke Duke in the original series.

    Same here i was enjoying the lethal weapon reboot but i stopped watching after they got rid of Riggs. I would like if they reboot ghost rider with a movie he is one of my favorite marvel characters and the movie with Nicolas Cage was terrible.

    I was going to say a few things but not all at once. But I think with all the new content coming out with cable and Netflix etc.. there are some more things to be made for sure. Like Jack Ryan just came out. But I was reading this (old) story about companies bidding for the rites to James Bond. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/apple-amazon-join-race-james-bond-film-rights-1035539 Not so much for feature films but maybe as a cornerstone to a streaming site (like HBO has GOT etc,,). I think a well done James Bond series would be a big draw.

    But what I was thinking, how much I love gangster/mob films and TV shows and how Sopranos was such a great show but can't be remade or continied without James Gandolfini. But I would really love an early version of Sopranos with all new actors of course. But say takes place when Tony was a youngster like in his teens/20s and we could see a young Carmella and Artie and Janice and his mom as well as Uncle Jr and his pop and all the other guys Paulie the whole cast some of who were quite powerful but we only got to hear about them or see them in old age. I think this would be dynamite not to mention the whole 70's/80's retro vibe that's so big.
